Not sure what you're saying here. If knife production errors decrease with time or quantity (the company gets to work out the kinks), then a sprint run and production run might still have the same error rate for the first few hundred pieces, then both would taper off similarly assuming company production processes remain constant. The sprint run would have the same piece-wise errors as a production run (up to the sprint limit) but those errors would be a far greater percent of the total run. Is this what you meant by accuracy?

True enough, yet we try to park in the safest spot when we go shopping with our new car the first few times. There is a difference, rational or not, between a dent someone else gives us without permission, and the ones we give ourselves through wear and tear.
Perhaps I've just been lucky with my two sprints so far, and CS just shipped my 3.5 Caly Blue, so hopefully I'll be 3 for 3 on Monday.
